Adding Whois Privacy

Last Updated: Sep 15, 2017

Whenever a domain name is registered, ICANN requires the registrar to publish valid contact details associated with the domain name. These contact details are publicly available in a Whois index.

Understandably, not everyone is comfortable having their contact information public and there are some risks associated with not guarding those details.We highly recommend that you add Whois Privacy protection to your domain name. To add Whois Privacy protection, please follow these simple steps:

  1. Log into your Name.com account.
  2. From the top menu, click the Domains tab, and select My domains list.
  3. Here you will find a list of all the domains in your account. Locate the domain name you would like to add Whois Privacy to and click the Quick Links button in the Management column. In the drop-down menu that appears, click Add Whois Privacy.
  4. The product is now in your cart and you can proceed to checkout by clicking the green Checkout Button or by clicking on the Cart.

Note: Not all TLDs allow you to use Whois Privacy. See the full list here.
